Create source git

flux create source git

Create or update a GitRepository source

Synopsis

The create source git command generates a GitRepository resource and waits for it to sync. For Git over SSH, host and SSH keys are automatically generated and stored in a Kubernetes secret. For private Git repositories, the basic authentication credentials are stored in a Kubernetes secret.

flux create source git [name] [flags]

Examples

  # Create a source from a public Git repository master branch
  flux create source git podinfo \
    --url=https://github.com/stefanprodan/podinfo \
    --branch=master

  # Create a source from a Git repository pinned to specific git tag
  flux create source git podinfo \
    --url=https://github.com/stefanprodan/podinfo \
    --tag="3.2.3"

  # Create a source from a public Git repository tag that matches a semver range
  flux create source git podinfo \
    --url=https://github.com/stefanprodan/podinfo \
    --tag-semver=">=3.2.0 <3.3.0"

  # Create a source from a Git repository using SSH authentication
  flux create source git podinfo \
    --url=ssh://git@github.com/stefanprodan/podinfo \
    --branch=master

  # Create a source from a Git repository using SSH authentication and an
  # ECDSA P-521 curve public key
  flux create source git podinfo \
    --url=ssh://git@github.com/stefanprodan/podinfo \
    --branch=master \
    --ssh-key-algorithm=ecdsa \
    --ssh-ecdsa-curve=p521

  # Create a source from a Git repository using basic authentication
  flux create source git podinfo \
    --url=https://github.com/stefanprodan/podinfo \
    --username=username \
    --password=password
